Kia Picanto: Tires and wheels / Recommended cold tire inflation pressures

Kia Picanto JA 2017-2024 Owner's Manual / Maintenance / Tires and wheels / Recommended cold tire inflation pressures

All tire pressures (including the spare) should be checked when the tires are cold. “Cold Tires” means the vehicle has not been driven for at least three hours or driven less than 1.6 km (one mile). Recommended pressures must be maintained for the best ride, top vehicle handling, and minimum tire wear. For recommended inflation pressure, refer to “Tires and Wheels” on page 9-06.

All specifications (sizes and pressures) can be found on a label attached to the vehicle.

WARNING

Tire under-inflation

Severe underinflation (70 kPa (10 psi) or more) can lead to severe heat build-up, causing blowouts, tread separation and other tire failures that can result in the loss of vehicle control leading to severe injury or death. This risk is much higher on hot days and when driving for long periods at high speeds.
